    1996 R1100RT-Hard rapping sound coming out of the right side

    doesn't sound good. Could that result in parts falling into the crankcase?

    I'd be a little concerned about the cam chain rails. They've been known to break on these engines.

  7. Yes, tragic John! The roundabouts are multiplying like rabbits here! One guy I know wears out the left side of his tires on roundabouts near his home, he has three closley linked together roundabouts, and he rides them repeatedly early mornings before traffic - as those are the best 'curves' without having to ride an hour or more. Have you read/listened to the Freakonomics podcast on Roundabouts? Featuring Carmel's Mayor Jimmy Brainard? Link to transcript/audio: https://freakonomics.com/podcast/roundabouts/ We'll lead off with a couple of bikes today, the first one a BMW: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdiotsInCars/comments/ok484m/motorcycle_getting_hit_by_car_at_105_mph_in/ https://www.reddit.com/r/IdiotsInCars/comments/orc77v/sudden_chaos/ https://www.reddit.com/r/IdiotsInCars/comments/olptxf/idiot_does_himself_wrong/

    2021 Un Check-In

    Many Riders heading home today. Hopefully they will check-in to this post and give a safe arrival report. Dennis and Carla made it home safe on Wednesday evening. Great ride south on the 58 and 33. Hot (110 degrees in Ventura) but after that section cooler weather returned. Great time and was fun meeting new peeps and seeing the usuals. Big thanks to Todd and Susan for putting this event together. Susan's wine tasting adventure to Paso Robles seemed like a popular excursion and people were excited... hope it all went well.

    Mileage and recent maintenance?
  11. I just started up my RT for the first time in 9 weeks. She idles normally but when I bring the RPMs up it starts to rap on the right side. I tried to localize the sound with a stethoscope. Sounds like it's somewhere in the right cylinder. Any advice on what I should be looking for? Where to start? It ran fine on my last trip. Thanks in advance. Werner

    Thanks Todd and Sue! It took a special UN to get me to come back to California; this was one of the better ones.

    I am sending you a PM - not an offer for a bag. If someone has one to offer MT Wallet, please go ahead.

    Cars..

    Note - not trying to scare you or talk you out of purchasing this car. Just the facts that I have gathered. You may want to call the place that did the inspection to find out. Was that a complete PPI? What did they inspect? Just to get to the bearing requires trans removal, not cheap in a Boxster or 911. An inspection like this could cost $1700. https://imsretrofit.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/IMSR-Prequalification.pdf Pelican Parts offers a replacement bearing for about $200. Just a high quality version of the Porsche bearing. Pelican suggests replacement every 40,000 mi. https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopcart/986M/POR_986M_UPG996_pg2.htm LN Engineering offers 2 ways to handle the issue. 1. A double row hybrid ceramic bearing (hybrid - only the balls are ceramic) with mount kit for $900 (on sale now for $800). This is not a permanent solution. Replace every 6 years or 75,000 miles. Certainly would cost more than $1700. Definitely an improvement over Porsche or Pelican bearing. https://lnengineering.com/products/the-definitive-guide-and-faq-for-porsche-ims-bearings/ims-retrofit.html 2. What they call the IMS Solution. They consider this a permanent fix. Essentially the bearing is replaced with a pressure fed plain bearing. kit cost about $1900. I was quoted $4500 installed. https://lnengineering.com/products/the-definitive-guide-and-faq-for-porsche-ims-bearings/ims-solution.html Some light reading - https://imsretrofit.com/ims-101/ You could just leave it alone. Better than 90% that it will not fail. Drive more, worry less.

    Great Time! 2500 miles for me Chris must have done near 4500. So many great roads and scenery.

    Cars..

    I think I mentioned earlier that this particular 2005 Boxster that I’m thinking about had the IMS bearing “inspected” at a cost of $1,700 dollars. My neighbor seemed a little unsure if just an inspection took place (doesn’t make sense to me) or a replacement as you said. I’d feel better if it was replaced but I’m not going to let it foil the deal if my offer is accepted on this car. Your wife’s car looks awesome Brian, and thanks for all that info!
